I’m the founder of Four Winds Reiki and a facilitator of transformation. I live in Forster, a stunning beachside location on the Mid-North Coast of Australia. I have a deep connection with horses and I want you to experience this same amazing bond. I want you to live happier and healthier, in harmony with your horses.
My personal mission is to help you live the life you were meant to live, and to become the person you were meant to be.
Do you feel stuck or unfulfilled? Do you long to break through the fear that is holding you back? Do you want to live a life filled with passion and joy, on purpose, in harmony with others—with people and with horses? I’ve been there too—I was feeling frustrated, challenged, and disillusioned. Then, I discovered a way to live a happier, healthier life, in harmony with my loved ones, with my natural surroundings—and importantly, with my horses. This is my story.
When I was in my early twenties, I experienced a traumatic event that changed the course of my life. I began a journey filled with personal challenges. A myriad of ‘interesting’ life experiences led me on a quest to find answers to the age-old questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What’s my purpose? Why do I suffer pain? Where to from here? My journey led me to the energetic healing practice of Reiki.
I began Reiki training in 1996 with my first Reiki teacher, Medicine Crow, a Native American who infuses his teachings with beautiful Native American philosophies and urban shamanism. In more recent years, I studied with Frans Stiene, co founder of the International House of Reiki, who teaches the spiritual Japanese origins of the Reiki system. Both teachers have played an integral part in my journey and have inspired me to follow my dreams.
Reiki changed my life. It offered me hope and healing. Through practising Reiki, I discovered a courage and strength within me that I never knew existed. I began to see the world from a different perspective. I began to share Reiki with others, many of whom also experienced major life shifts. Those facing health challenges improved; others let go of deep emotional pain; still others experienced profound changes on mental and spiritual levels.
By helping others to heal, my own life improved. I felt grounded, at peace, confident, focused, energized. Most importantly, I felt inspired. Reiki helped me to realise my life’s purpose, and showed me how to fulfil it.
Through Reiki, I have helped hundreds of women discover their inner strength. I’ve shared with trauma survivors techniques that can help cultivate in them feelings of inner peace and harmony; practices that can help them to feel happy, motivated, and connected to life. Reiki has helped these women not only to heal from trauma, but to thrive
Through Reiki, you too can develop a deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself and others, and become clear about what you want and how to attain it. You can unlock the power that lies within you and make each and every day of your life align with your desires.
Sharing Reiki with other women opened me up to a new awareness of what it means to live in harmony with one another and with the natural energy that surrounds us. But it was when I began to share Reiki with my animals, in particular with my horses, that I began to have a much deeper understanding of the magic of Reiki. I lived on a farm with my herd of Arabian horses and as I shared Reiki healing energy with them, my horses in turn became my spiritual teachers.
The more Reiki I shared with the horses, the more deeply I was able to tap into their wisdom. They opened me up to my own inner wisdom and I realized that horses have so much to teach us humans about new ways of being, and about new ways of bringing joy, peace, and balance into our lives. I now believe that horses come into our lives to guide us and to heal us. Tuning into their extraordinary healing capacity while reawakening our own is a life-changing experience that can deepen our understanding of ourselves, of others—and of life.
My horses are my muses and they are the inspiration behind Four Winds Reiki.
Through Reiki, I have helped many hundreds of horses to heal from traumatic events, neglect, abuse, injury, and illness. I feel so blessed to be able to do this work. I believe that horses can take us on a spiritual journey, deep into the realms of healing, awareness, and soul growth. As we learn from the wisdom of our horses, we can develop our intuitive senses and heal our lives.
Horses are healers. And when we connect with them in the meditative realm of Reiki, they can teach us how to connect deeply with all of nature, to trust our soul’s wisdom, and to tap into our innate ability to heal ourselves and others. And, once we reawaken our memory of our interconnectedness with all beings, and expand our insight and awareness, we too become healers, and we begin, in turn, to help our horses heal.
That is the magic of Reiki and the truth about our equine friends.
My courses offer you the unique opportunity to reconnect with your inner self and the natural world through the practice of Reiki and the wisdom of horses. One of my greatest pleasures in life is connecting with and helping like-minded individuals to discover the incredible healing power of Reiki. Inspirational and life-changing, our Four Winds Reiki courses combine traditional Japanese Reiki, Equine Reiki, and holistic horsemanship, resulting in a uniquely personal, transformational healing journey with horses. Let me take you on a journey to reawaken your spirit, to realize the oneness of all things, and to recognise that you already have an innate ability to heal yourself, your horses, the animals around you, and our planet as a whole.
